Dutch?

Why is there this tale that Dutch is hard to master? Is it really that hard? I've checked out some grammars and it seems tolerable, though I haven't heard it spoken. I was even told Dutch was hard by my lecturer, who has reading knowledge of it. Granted that the morphology might be tough for us English speakers but is there any grounding for this belief? It doesn't help that English is so widely spoken in the Netherlands. How can you practice, heh.
